This week I’ve decided to exchange Redmine for the ChiliProject. The reason for this is the support for Ruby 1.9. My Apache Passenger server runs Ruby 1.9 so for Redmine I needed a seperate webserver.
When I tried to access the “My Account” page I recieved the following error:
ArgumentError (invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII): <internal:prelude>:10:in `synchronize' passenger (3.0.7) lib/phusion_passenger/rack/request_handler.rb:96:in `process_request' passenger (3.0.7) lib/phusion_passenger/abstract_request_handler.rb:513:in `accept_and_process_next_request' passenger (3.0.7) lib/phusion_passenger/abstract_request_handler.rb:274:in `main_loop' passenger (3.0.7) ... `handle_spawn_application' passenger (3.0.7) lib/phusion_passenger/abstract_server.rb:357:in `server_main_loop' passenger (3.0.7) lib/phusion_passenger/abstract_server.rb:206:in `start_synchronously' passenger (3.0.7) helper-scripts/passenger-spawn-server:99:in `<main>' Rendering /data/www/rails/chili/public/500.html (500 Internal Server Error)
How should I solve this? The chiliproject has an issue related to this: https://www.chiliproject.org/issues/591.
The following Apache configuration fixed the issue: (The sample is on a FreeBSD system)
I added the following code to a file in the /usr/local/apache22/envvars.d/environment.env
Problems I ruled out or fixed
While trying I also made sure the following things were configured:
I made sure the database is UTF-8. I re-created the database
an ran the migrations again.
create database chiliproject character set utf8;
I used the mysql2 connector instead of the mysql connector in database.yml
